The new Republican majority in the House would seem to represent a Godsend for the nuclear power industry, which has been stymied by Democrats in the past. But not so fast, reports Politico. “The tea party-led charge to cut spending and pull back the hand of government could stand in the way,” the news service states.

The nuclear power sector relies on assistance from the government, and that makes it vulnerable to attack from congressmen looking to slash spending and big government.
